EMC News – Kingston’s heritage committee will not be able to do its job properly because of a civic rule that limits terms for citizen appointments, a city councillor charges. “It’s being eviscerated,” said Coun. Bill Glover. Furthermore, he blames city council’s “development party” motivation for the brain drain. That’s the title he gives to a group of councillors who received a large percentage of campaign donations from de-

nominations committee which sifted through dozens of citizen applications to municipal boards and committees, and made recommendations to council. She says no bias was shown during the appointment process. “I fully support renewal and diversity.” Coun. Berg and others admit they struggled with the bylaw that limits citizen appointments to no more than six consecutive years, but say they had to follow the rules. “I really was not comfortable taking the six-year term limit and disregarding it.

velopers during the last election, and tend to vote as a bloc. “It means that what I identified as being the development-sympathetic people, without regard for the overall benefit of the city, are dancing to the tune of their campaign funders.” It’s an accusation Coun. Glover has made before to express frustration over what he views as a prodevelopment-at-all-costs agenda among the mayor and a handful of councillors. Coun. Sandy Berg, one of the councillors listed by Glover as a “development party” member, refuted the accusations. “I am not built that way. I certainly don’t agree with it. It’s completely inappropriate that someone would make that statement.” Coun. Berg chaired the

The heritage committee is one of them – seven of its 10 members must step down because they have served the six year maximum. The Sydenham district councillor believes that was a mistake, adding the city has the authority to extend the six-year term under exceptional circumstances. “The bylaw says if there is no suitable applicant, somebody can be reappointed. That could have been used.” Coun. Glover adds two of the seven mandated skillsets needed by the herSee Committee page 5

Kingston Salvation Army launches kettle campaign Correspondent

It’s that time of year, time for christmas lights, santa, holiday shopping and of course time to donate to the Salvation Army. The infamous Christmas Kettles are popping up across the country and on November 16th, the Salvation Army launched it’s kettle campaign in Kingston at the Cataraqui Centre and later in the evening at the Kingston Frontenacs game. Kettles will be all over the city from November 16th until December 24th and members of the community are encouraged to give to one of the 18 kettles that will be at various locations and businesses throughout the city. The kettle campaign has always been very successful in Kingston, raising funds for nutritious meals, emergency food and clothing and rent and utility assistance for families and individuals. It also funds various programs for adults and children at both the Kingston Citadel Church and the Rideau Heights Community Church. Bonita McCourt, director of family services with Kingston Citadel was at the launch of the kettles at the Cataraqui Centre and emphasized the importance of getting the public to donate each and every year. Last year, the food pantry at the Kingston Citadel assisted 9,353 people and continues to assist about 1000 people per month. The Citadel also has a daytime drop in shelter for the homeless and those in need of support and was able to serve 13,349 meals last year. Rideau Heights also served about 12,000 meals and assisted about 1200 people, but none of this would be possible without the generous donations of Kingstonians. The goal for this year is to raise $250,000, which seems like a lot of money, but last year the kettles surpassed their goal of $240,000. McCourt was worried that the goal wouldn’t be met last year because they were very far behind in their last week, but after a call out to the community,

Kingstonians stepped up and showed just how generous they are. But it is not just monetary donations that are needed, the Salvation Army relies on a number of volunteers each year to man the kettles. This year, they need to fill 6,100 hours of volunteer time, and while there are already 220 volunteers booked they always need more support. This year brings a bit of a twist to the manning of the kettles. On December 8th from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. local celebrities will be donating their time and manning the kettles at the Cataraqui Centre. Also, December 15th is Military day for the kettles and they will be manned exclusively by members of the military, which is a first for the kettle campaign in Kingston and certainly something that will encourage more people to come out and donate. To volunteer your time please call 613-531-5918 or by email at and look out for the kettles across the city.

EMC News – The city has a new strategy to increase parking and pedestrian safety around Hotel Dieu Hospital. But it does not include expanding the 440-space Chown parking garage at Brock Street and Montreal Streets. In a weighty 100-page report to council this week, transportation staff instead recommended a variety of street-level strategies to help the hospital cope with its fast-expanding role as a clinical centre. Hotel Dieu saw 410,000 patient visits last year, a number that’s expected to climb sharply next year. “When redevelopment construction is complete in early 2013, there will be additional clinic transfers (from Kingston General Hospital) that will generate approximately 56,000 additional patient visits per year, representing a 13 percent increase,” according to a staff report by commissioner Denis Leger. To cope with increasing patient and vehicle traffic at the Dieu, city officials propose a variety of low-cost measures. Among them; -discontinue the first-hour-

free parking program in the Chown and Hanson garages to free up more spaces; -convert Pay & Display spaces to monthly permit parking on Brock Street, between Barrie and Division Streets; -reduce the speed limit on Brock street from 50 to 40 kph with pedestrian warning signage; -install three flat-top speed humps on Brock Street in front of the hospital; -enforce ‘no parking’, ‘no stopping’ rules on Brock Street at the hospital’s main entrance. Transportation services director Sheila Kidd says a new parking study looked at ways to move more monthly permit parkers to the under-utilized spaces on nearby streets, instead of leaving their cars all day in the multi-level Chown garage. “And make those (Chown garage spots) available for patients and visitors because those are the most convenient spaces.” City staff are also aware that thousands of hospital visitors jaywalk across Brock Street between the garage and the hospital, rather than use traffic signals 40 metres away. While staff do not condone jaywalking, they are proposing speed humps and a reduced speed limit on Brock

Street to improve pedestrian safety. “These are traffic calming measures,” Kidd explained. The parking and safety study, presented to the November 20 council meeting, stems from the collapse of an earlier plan to build a 200-space addition to the Chown garage and add a pedestrian skywalk across Brock Street. The $10 million hospital-led project did not materialize. City and hospital staff have been consulting for the past year on a new strategy to accommodate hospital employees, patients and visitors. The hospital now has 1,282 employees requiring 709 peak demand parking spaces – far more than the Chown garage can accommodate. That figure is expected to grow to 800 monthly parking spaces as the Dieu’s clinical role expands, according to the parking study. Meanwhile, the hospital handles an average of 1,709 patients a day who require 354 short-term parking spaces. It’s estimated they will need 488 parking spaces over the next ten years. The study finds there is enough parking supply both on and off the street within a 500-metre radius of the hospi-

tal. “Based on these (staff and patient) projections, there is enough parking supply to accommodate HDH growth over the next ten years,” according to Leger. The challenge, he says, is to manage the available parking supply to meet the demand, even if that means directing some patients and permit parking staff to park within a 5 or 10 minute walk of the hospital. Over the next 12 months, the city intends to relocate up to 25 Chown permit parkers to the nearby Hanson garage, discourage shoppers from using the both garages by eliminating the first-hour-free program set up in 2004, allocate $50,000 saved from the first-hour-free program to launch a new shopper incentive parking program, designate monthly parking spaces on Brock Street, plus offer hospital employee discounts to use Kingston Transit. City officials have not ruled out a future expansion of the Chown garage, or constructing another parking facility in the downtown, but the cost to do that is estimated at $35,000$50,000 per space. Currently, the Chown garage represents 25 percent of the city’s entire stock of offstreet public parking.

Heritage committee gutted by six year term limit; Councillor claims committee From page 1

itage committee - architectural design and archaeology - are lacking among the new group of appointees. “I think the city is going to end up paying money and have somebody on a retainer to have that expertise.” Coun. Glover, who continues serving on the heritage committee, reminded council at its November 6 meeting that heritage protection, preservation and promotion is a complex matter that requires a certain level of expertise and continuity among committee members. He tried to persuade council to delay the seven new appointments and readvertise the positions, if necessary. However, his motion was lost. In an interview after the meeting, Glover lashed out at those who voted to wipe the heritage committee slate. He claims political party-style decisions are populating committees with members who will rubber-stamp projects. “It’s the development party,” he charged. “As

we saw with the Jack Astors business, they had no concept then either.” His Jack Astors comment referred to a prolonged discussion at the heritage committee over the restaurant chain’s attempt to redesign the old TD Bank overlooking Market Square. Many of the exterior light and building design conditions imposed by the committee were later overruled by council. Coun. Berg defended the new appointees in the face of stinging criticism from Coun. Glover. “Take a look at the resumes. They are impressive people across the board. I have great confidence every committee is populated with quality, credible, enthusiastic people that offer a diversity of skills,” she told reporters. She also pointed out other committees lost experienced members due to the six-year rule, including the chair of the Kingston Environmental Advisory Forum and the long-serving chair of the Taxi Commission, former mayor Ken Matthews.

Squirrels chew through winter tradition in Kingston; City Park stays dark By Bill Hutchins Reporter

EMC News – Only one tree in City Park will be lit up this holiday and winter season. Pesky squirrels have chewed through hundreds of LED Christmas light cords, forcing officials to pull the plug on three dozen other trees in the annual light-upthe-park event. “It’s unfortuIt’s nate. been a great event over the last number of years,” said Utilities Kingston president Jim Keech. The Kingston Electrical Association, whose members include city utility crews and other electricians, looked after stringing and maintaining the lights year after year

through its volunteer efforts. It was last year that volunteers first noticed that hundreds of lights did not work. This year, most of the cords have been damaged and some of the LED bulbs, small which resemble are pine cones, missing. “We assisted when they

changed from incandescent to LED - smaller lights, smaller wires. The squirrels seem to have more of an appetite for them,” Keech explained. Mayor Mark Gerretsen has another theory. “We are unfortunately a victim to what appears to be global warming.” The mayor says milder winters mean squirrels aren’t “hibernating” as long. “I do know that when we did the Jingle Bell Walk last year and they went to flip the switch barely any of the lights

came on. Because of how warm it was the squirrels have been out and chewing through the wires.” He added: “It’s disappointing to hear that. It’s become a staple in Kingston for the last 10 or 15 years.” Next month’s Jingle

Bell Walk will focus on lighting a single tree which has been dedicated to the victims of the 9/11 attack. The rest of the park will be dark, and no one is sure if there is any cost-effective solution to the bushy-tailed problem. Keech says the cost and time spent to string more trees may be a pointless exercise because the lights are usually left up year

particular (tree lighting) event has run its life cycle and it’s time for something new to begin.” One thing Gerretsen doesn’t want to see is a “Band-Aid” solution. He says civic minds need to brainstorm a new way to celebrate the Jingle Bell Walk. “I am sure we will come up with something equally creative, if not this year then sometime in the future.”

round. “Putting in more LED lights, unless you’re prepared to take them down, probably isn’t going to work.” Perhaps it’s time for a new tradition to brighten up the drab winter months, the mayor observed. “We definitely have a budget for beautifying the downtown area. Maybe there’s something else we can do instead. Maybe that

EMC - Your Community Newspaper IN OUR OPINION

What a difference a pair of heels makes Coughlar's Corner By Kristen Coughlar

EMC Editorial – Here it is: the latest update on my dancing quest. As you may recall, in an edition of Coughlar’s Corner earlier this month I revealed my plan to explore various styles of dance offered by the Kingston School of Dance in the hopes of finding one that may turn into a recreational addiction. I don’t know about you, but when it comes to physical activity I’d much rather be sweating it on the sports court or on the dance floor than at the gym. KSD offers a lunch pro-

gram and evening classes for adults interested in a variety of dance disciplines, including Ballet, Afro Cuban, Latino Jazz, Adult Contemporary and Ballroom and Latin for Couples. For the past two weeks I have been trying my hand, or feet as it were, at Latino Jazz. The class consists of basic solo combinations of Salsa, Merengue, Cha-Cha and Bachata to Latin beats. I showed up to my first class wearing much the same as I had for Adult Contemporary a few weeks before: yoga pants and Tshirt; I was a tad underdressed. Inside the studio, a fairly large group of women were sporting tights, skirts and tanks. They appeared well prepared for Latino Jazz, while I looked ready for a movie marathon on my couch. Despite visually looking out of place, the ladies made me feel wel-

come. I made it through the warm-up with relative ease, but once the class was in full swing I began to struggle. The women all changed into heels and took to the dance floor with confidence, elegance, and a dash of sensuality. Meanwhile, I, sans footwear, hit the dance floor feeling much like a bull in a china shop as I struggled with the footwork. I left the one-hour class having had a lot of fun, but with little sense of accomplishment. I knew I needed to go back the following week and give it another shot. I showed up to my second Latino Jazz class wearing tights and a tank, and armed with a pair of heels. Once again, the warm-up went well. As we changed into our shoes I began to worry if I would struggle with the footwork just

as much in heels as I had without. The shoes helped! I still struggled with some of the footwork, but I was able to memorize and execute more than I had during that first Tuesday class. By the time we got down to some choreography I was feeling a little more confident, and while I definitely didn’t resemble a seasoned pro by any means, I was happy to have seen improvement. I won’t count my chickens just yet, as I still have a few other dance disciplines to try out, but Latino Jazz just might be the class for me. It’s challenging but fun and comes with good music, a patient instructor and an energetic and welcoming group of fellow dancers. Be sure to check back in the coming weeks to read about my experiences with Afro Cuban, Ballet and possibly even Ballroom and Latin for Couples.

In Our Opinion

Fronts deserve fans’ support EMC Editorial – The NHL may be mired in a lockout with no end in sight, but hockey in Kingston is alive and well. The Kingston Frontenacs have proven to be an exciting alternative for fans who love Canada’s game. At press time, the Fronts have an impressive record of 12 wins and nine losses, and are riding a five-game winning streak. The team has won seven of its past 10 games and sits just three points behind the Belleville Bulls and Oshawa Generals, who are tied atop the East Division standings. The Fronts are scoring goals, recently earned their first shutout, and seem to be a vastly improved team compared to last season, when they won just 19 of their 68 games. The positive changes aren’t just happening on the ice, they’re also happening in the stands. According to, last year’s average attendance for Frontenacs games was 2,546. For the last five home games at the K-Rock Centre this season, attendance has dipped below three thousand just once, and peaked on November 9 when a crowd of 4,273 saw the Fronts blank the Belleville Bulls 2-0. The average attendance at those games was 3,346, and if the team can keep winning games that number will surely increase. It’s difficult to know what came first – the team’s improved play or the growing crowds – but there’s no doubt one is good for the other. The young Fronts squad feeds of the energy of their fans and the fans are thoroughly entertained in return. The team also seems to be stepping up its promotional efforts through social media, in-game programming and community outreach. Most recently, players participated in the Santa Claus parade. If the NHL does return this year, it will be interesting to see what effect, if any, the return has on OHL attendance numbers. One thing is for certain: Kingston fans should continue to cheer on the Fronts either way. Supporting the black and gold is not only good for the team, it’s also good for the city and its downtown, as many shops and restaurants benefit from sports fans flocking to the city’s core. It’s too early to say this year’s Fronts are a playoff-worthy team, but they’re sure working hard to make their fans believers. Who says there’s no hockey this season?

Community comes together to enrich the lives of city’s homeless animals By Kristen Coughlar

EMC News – It takes great patience, determination and passion to hold onto a dream for 10 years. Luckily for animals at the Kingston Humane Society (KHS), Brandy May possesses all of these qualities. It was 10 years ago that May; a humane society volunteer, approached KHS staff to ask whether a dog run would be of benefit to the animals at the shelter. “I heard that there are dogs that are here on a judge’s order, which means there have been domestic disputes or fencing disputes…They never get out, they never get walked, because they never become part of the shelter. That broke my heart,” May said of what prompted her to step forward with her idea. While the shelter was supportive of May’s vision, it lacked the financial means to get this kind of project off the ground. “We, like most animal shelters, live hand to mouth and we hope every month that the cheque book is going to balance when we pay our bills,” explained KHS Board

President Janice Saunders. “Brandy was concerned that was what was going to stand in our way, so she started saving her pennies.” About a year ago, armed with a sizable nest egg, May went back to KHS staff ready to see her vision realized. “Running a building like this there’s always something at the top of your to-do list…We very quickly determined that this project could be put on the backburner if we didn’t manage it properly, so we were very lucky to have a group of individuals who were willing to come together and meet and talk about only this project,” Saunders said. The group, comprised of Susan Petrick, John Marina, Brandy May, Lindsay Hadcock, Deanna Morash and Kristen Kadis began meeting in early June to formulate a plan for the project, and thanks to additional support from a few generous community partners the enrichment yard was completed less than six months later. “We couldn’t have done it without your generosity; you are in our hearts forever,” May said, acknowledging Dwight Williams of Lennox

Fencing, Mike Keirstead and Matthew Derbyshire of Clermont Group and Blake Halladay of Kingston Community Credit Union during a Nov. 13 ribbon cutting ceremony. Lennox Fencing provided the fencing for the dog run free of charge, a contribution of $5,500; Clermont Group, which was awarded the tender for the project discounted its quote by $2,800; and KCCU pledged $1,000 towards the project. The enrichment yard, named Missy’s Way in honour of a 16-year-old Schnoodle close to May’s heart, includes a patio area, grass, trees and shrubs. An insulated dog house and wading pool will be added in the future. “I’m just elated. It’s a dream come true really,” May said of seeing her 10-year vision become a reality. Missy’s Way will serve as an area for shelter dogs to run in the open and to play and socialize with people and other dogs. “The amount of difference this is going to make in the lives of the animals that get to come out here is absolutely immeasurable,” Saunders said.

Show Children You Care: annual Teddy Bear Campaign aims to raise $20,000 By Kristen Coughlar

EMC News – A single Teddy Bear, that’s all it takes to make a difference in the lives of children treated at Kingston General Hospital (KGH) and Hotel Dieu Hospital (HDH). Last week, the KGH Auxiliary launched its annual “Show Children You Care” Teddy Bear Campaign. For just $100, community groups, businesses and individuals can sponsor a plush teddy bear that will provide comfort for a child in hospital and also help to fund much needed patientcare equipment. “This year our definitive goal is $20,000 because the piece of equipment is valued at that,” explained campaign co-chair Heather Breck. Funds from the annual Teddy Bear Campaign will go towards the purchase of a VeinViewer machine, a piece of equipment that utilizes near-infrared light to help physicians visualize vessels and increase the success rate in drawing blood and starting IV lines in young patient. While only $20,000 is

needed to purchase the VeinViewer, the Auxiliary is hoping the campaign exceeds that goal, reaching $25,000. After all, there are more than 250 bears available for sponsorship. Each bear that is sponsored is displayed in the Watkins Lobby sporting a tag acknowledging its sponsor. At the conclusion of the campaign, all bears are distributed throughout KGH and Hotel Dieu to children in need of some comfort during their hospital stay. A partnership with Kawartha Credit Union ensures that every bear is distributed to a child in hospital and that all funds raised during the campaign go towards the purchase of pediatric equipment. “They donate $4,000 to this campaign. That is enough to cover the cost of all of our bears and all of our administrative costs so that every penny that people donate to this campaign goes directly to the equipment,” Breck said. Sponsors have already started stepping forward in support of the annual campaign, and as a result the Christmas trees in the

Watkins Lobby are already filling up with teddy bears. Twenty-eight bears have been sponsored in memory of the late Toni Borhi, a former member of the Teddy Bear Committee. This year’s campaign is dedicated in her honour. Breck noted that community support of the campaign has remained steady over the years; however, she would like to see more involvement from area schools. “We do get the support of several schools… it would just be nice to see other schools on board,” she said. “We have a dedicated pediatric unit in this hospital, so all of the children in our geographic area are recipients of the services of this facility and of the equipment that we fundraise for. Every single child in every school may at some point need the services of pediatrics whether it’s as an inpatient or an outpatient.” Breck noted that the sponsorship money for each bear can be raised individually or as a group. Sponsors receive a souvenir teddy bear as a thank you for their donation, which they can

Family and Children’s Services of Frontenac, Lennox and Addington Cuts Ribbon on New Location By Loarraine Payette

The new location of Family and Children’s Services of Frontenac, Lennox and Addington at 817 Division Street in Kingston is a bright, open LEED’s structure. The facility is in place to continue to improve the services offered by the society to children and families throughout the region. nox and Addington in 1899. Funding was also a major consideration. As an independent agency, they had to rely on public and private donations to provide programs. Hard economic times would cause great drops in contributions, and some CAS facilities had to close when they were truly needed the most. But they never lost their goal of helping children. In Lennox and Addington, a similar story was being played out. Starting operations at the Town Hall in Napanee, they moved several times before ending up at their latest facility at 99

Advance Avenue. But their goal has always been children and their families. In 2009 – 2010, the two agencies assisted nearly 2,600 families and had more than 480 children in their combined care. It was definitely time for the next change in operations. On April 1, they officially amalgamated and became the Family and Children’s Services of Frontenac, Lennox and Addington (FACSFLA). By coming together to form a single unit, they could combine resources and talent, strengthening and enhancing their services and providing an

L-r, John Gerretsen, MPP Kingston and the Islands and Minister of the Environment; Kingston Mayor Mark Gerrtesen; MP Ted Hsu, Kingston and the Islands; Dr. Mary Stewart-Ross, Chairman of the Board; John Suart, FACSFLA; and Paul McManus, TD Bank all took part in the ribbon cutting.

even higher level of care to all of the families, children and youth in their combined area. “We’re really excited to have the building now and it really is a building that is beyond our agency,” said Steve Woodman, executive director. “This is a community building and we want to be able to open it up to our community and be partners for its use. This part of the building is publicly accessible for meetings, life skills training and all the things that our community partners need to do, so we’re quite excited to be here and to be a part of the com-

munity. It’s a great place. It has opened both our capacity to serve our clients and for our community partners to have a good place to meet as well.” “This building is more than bricks and mortar, it’s more than just an office building, it’s a symbol of where our organization is and where it’s going,” said John Suart, FACSFLA. “We are more than a hundred years old, but like this building, we’re also very new. In fact, we just went under amalgamation. We have some new spaces and some new faces, but we’re still doing the same job

that we have been doing since 1894.” “Our original partners were Queen’s University, the City and the local churches,” said Dr. Mary Stewart-Ross, Chairman of the Board. “They are still our partners, and we have many more now. It’s important for you to know that the vision in this building happened prior to our amalgamation, prior to the current board, the current executive director and many of the current staff. The vision came from the board before us, largely with the help of my predecessor, Brian Woodman, and our previous executive director, Ray Muldoon.” Honoured guests and speakers included John Gerretsen, MPP Kingston and the Islands and Minister of the Environment; Kingston Mayor Mark Gerrtesen; John Suart of FACSFLA; and Sybil Foley, Ministry of Chidren and Youth Services. On hand for the ribbon cutting was MP Ted Hsu, Kingston and the Islands. Also part of the opening was the presentation of a cheque in the amount of $50,000 by Paul McManus of the Toronto Dominion Bank, one FACSFLA’s many partners. The money will be used by the society to help forward its many programs. For more on the amalgamation of the two societies, and the organization itself, please go to .

Friday, November 16, was a beautiful day for new beginnings as Family and Children’s Services of Frontenac, Lennox and Addington proudly cut the ribbon on their new facility at 817 Division Street in Kingston. Large, bright and airy, the LEED’s structure mimics 1960s architecture in style while maintaining the latest in environmental awareness, form and function. For more than a century the Children’s Aid Society has reached out to abused and neglected children throughout the country, providing them with a safe haven. In Canada, journalist and advocate J. J. Kelso brought awareness of the plight of young children, some of kindergarten age, who lived on the streets and fought each day to survive. His work not only encouraged the Province of Ontario to create legislation to deal with this issue, it also encouraged concerned citizen’s to take a stand and create children’s aid societies (CAS). In Kingston, radical minister Reverend J. R. Black of the Bethel Congregational Church took up the challenge and brought various churches, Queen’s University and the City itself together to open one CAS at 75 Union Street in 1894. A similar institution was established as Family and Children’s Services (FACS) in Len-

The Kingston EMC - Thursday, November 22, 2012


Because of you, we’re helping WRGD\¶VSDWLHQWV¿JKWDQHXU\VPV Family’s gift enables staff to provide state-of-the-art care to patients Lottie Bell captivated front-line caregivers as she softly spoke about the insidious impact that aneurysms have had on her family – claiming the lives of her mother, aunt and teenaged niece. That is what sparked the Belleville area woman and her brother, Dale Silver of Sydenham, in making a $35,000 gift to the University Hospitals Kingston Foundation (UHKF). The funds - $7,000 a year over the next five years – are earmarked for areas where the needs are greatest within the interventional radiology (IVR) program at Kingston General Hospital (KGH). IVR is a medical sub-specialty of radiology that features minimally-invasive image-guided procedures to diagnose and treat disease. Using diagnostic images such as CT or MRI scans, interventional radiologists are able to direct interventional instruments throughout a patient’s body. These procedures are usually performed using needles and catheters, rather than by making large incisions as in traditional surgery. For patients this often means better outcomes and a speedier recovery. As part of the massive redevelopment program at KGH, the hospital is fortunate to have new IVR suites and state-of-the-art equipment, said Dr. Annette McCallum, clinical department head of diagnostic radiology. “The flexibility of this gift is most appreciated,” she said at a recent recognition event for Lottie and Dale. The funds are already being used to help optimize staff education, so that medical radiation technologists (MRTs) and nurses are trained on use of the latest equipment and techniques.

Tree lighting tips

As MRT Lesa Thom said, a portion of the funds have already been put to great use as she and a colleague were able to receive specialized education that they are now sharing with their colleagues. “It helps us assist the doctors, helps us assist the patients and to use the equipment to its full capacity. It really is amazing equipment that we have.”

Lighting a Christmas tree may seem like child’s play, but time and again people struggle with the task. Untangling wires and wrapping them around boughs can be nerve wracking, but lighting a tree doesn’t have to be a chore when you follow some tips from the professionals. First, keep in mind that wrapping lights around the tree horizontally is more work and often doesn’t produce a multidimensional effect. Rather, string the lights from the trunk up to the top, working vertically. This is actually how the tree decorators at Rockefeller Center in New York City do the famous

This wonderful gift made by the Bell and Silver families shows the importance that donations are making in health care delivery right here in Kingston. KGH is fortunate to have three specialized Interventional Radiologists, in a section headed up by Dr. Doug Walker, who was also on hand to thank the donors for their gift. The donation being made by the Bell and Silver families is “significant” and will make a positive impact on outcomes for patients, Dr. McCallum said.

tree year after year. This method helps eliminate tangled wires and empty spots. Remember to plug in the strands of lights before you begin to check for burntout bulbs and to adjust the spacing of lights to prevent dark spots. Think about varying light bulb sizes to add more dimension. String an inner layer of small LED white lights to produce an inner glow on the tree before adding larger, colored lightson top to increase visual appeal. Just be sure to match the same wattage of the lights so that you do not have power surges and can prolong the life of the bulbs.

UHKF Board member Bittu George thanked Lottie and Dale for their gift, noting the fact they have been able to turn the tragedy they have experienced into something positive that will benefit people across south-eastern Ontario. “It is contributions from people like you that allow us to have first-class health care. Without contributions like yours, we would not be able to do the things we do in our health care system today.” Did you know? o You can watch recognition events on our YouTube channel (UHKFdn) o Photos of events and celebrations are on our Facebook page (UHKFdn) o We share lots of stories via Twitter @UHKF

Holy Cross students to perform musical adaptation of The Secret Garden By: Mandy Marciniak Correspondent

Holy Cross Secondary school is taking some risks this year when it comes to their drama production. Last year, the school saw great success with their production of Phantom of the Opera, and they are hoping this year brings the same success. This year, the school is taking on a musical adaptation of France Hodgson Burnett’s 1911 classic children’s story The Secret Garden, “It is musical adaptation that was written in 1991 and won many Tony Awards. They took the same characters and storyline and adapted it in a very abstract way. It is not really a children’s musical, it contains a lot of ghosts and is very haunting,” explained Stacy CheckDrumm, the director of the play. This is Check-Drumm’s second year directing the Holy Cross drama production, a role she took on after 15 years of teaching and after the previous drama head at Holy Cross retired. After doing Phantom last year, Check-Drumm wanted to do something equally as impressive this year, “We wanted to do something that was a little less well-known, something that was still a beautiful piece of musical theatre but also something that

would maybe surprise people a little bit more. Everyone knows Phantom, so this year we wanted to do something that was a little lesser known but just as amazing.” Taking on a project of this caliber means a lot of work for the students. Auditions began on September 10th, only two weeks into the school year. After casting was complete the students and staff prepped for a 10 week rehearsal schedule, “It requires a lot of dedication from both the students and the staff. It is a very intense schedule but it is nice because the pay off is really great. We get really creative and really busy all at the same time and then the end product is really great and we can be really proud of it,” said Check-Drumm. It also takes quite a few students to put on a drama production of this stature, 51 Holy Cross Students will actually appear on stage during the play, “it makes things a little challenging,” explained CheckDrumm, “especially when you consider that our stage is also part of the cafeteria, we don’t have an actual dedicated stage. That being said, it is amazing how we can transform that into a theatre at night.” Last year, Holy Cross saw sold out shows with their production of Phantom and they

Cast members from the Holy Cross production of The Secret Garden, Kiana Gouveia as Mary Lennox, Jeremy Pendergast as Dickon, Samantha Pascoal as Martha and Mitchell Furlan as Colin (seated) hope that the same thing will happen with their production of The Secret Garden. The community has had a chance to see

what they can do and the quality of performance they can expect, so hopefully there will be some anticipation for this production

and years to come. The play runs from Wednesday November 28th to Saturday December 1st and curtain time is

7 p.m. Tickets are on sale from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. daily in the front foyer of the school or at the door before the performance.

My Take

By mARK HAsKins

EMC Entertainment Some have called Abraham Lincoln the greatest president while others have called him the worst. Regardless of where you stand, Lincoln is a fascinating look at the man and the president as he fights to abolish slavery. ByThe JoHnfocus tUcKERof this film is on Lincoln’s (Daniel Day Lewis) last months in office, and his political battle to get the 13th amendment passed. He’s faced with a house that ‘s divided. The Republicans hold the majority but only just. They don’t have the votes to get the two thirds majority needed to pass the amendment. Beyond that the Republicans, Lincoln’s own party, led by Thaddeus Stevens (Tommy Lee Jones) hate him because he doesn’t go far enough. The Democrats hate Lincoln because they think he goes too far, and refuse to support his plans to abolish slavery. Lincoln, along with his Secretary of State William Seward (David Strathairn), must pull every political trick and maneuver they can in order to convince, cajole and bribe the representatives to get the votes they need. While the political battle unfolds we also get an indepth look at the man. We see the storyteller, the lawyer, the husband, and the father. We see him confide in, fight with, and lean on his wife Mary Todd Lincoln (Sally Field). We see the strained relationship he has with his older son Robert (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), and the tenderness he shows his younger son Tad (Gulliver McGrath). At the heart of it all is a man with strong convictions for what he believes to be right, and the strength of will to act on them. Lincoln is a masterful piece of film making. Spielberg is both meticulous and methodical in his execution. Everything from the placement of the actors, to the lighting, to the camera angles are carefully thought out for each and every scene. Every line and word is carefully

measured and precisely delivered. There are no wasted scenes or lines. Every moment is important, and carries this incredible sense of gravity and history. It’s a truly great film. Daniel Day Lewis’ performance is nothing short of remarkable. His transformation into Lincoln is astounding. He has become this large-than-life character from history, this almost mythic figure, and made him human and vulnerable. He has made Lincoln real.

Sally Field is incredible. She has taken the tragic figure of Mary Todd and shown us her strength and her humanity. It’s the role and the performance of a lifetime.

Local actor’s original horror tale set for North American distribution in 2013 By Kristen Coughlar

EMC Entertainment – After starring in such roles as Sherlock Holmes and Dracula, local actor Anthony D. P. Mann’s latest project will see him cast in an entirely original role. Mann will step into character as Victor Brimstone in The Ghostkeepers, a film set for release in the New Year. The Ghostkeepers is an original film based on a play written by Mann back in 2009. The plot of the film follows a podcaster who has rented the house where his favourite movie, The House Where Evil Was Born, was filmed more than 20 years LUX-DealerAd-KingstonEMC.pdf earlier.

“The House Where Evil was Born is believed to have been a cursed film because the director killed himself at the very end of the final day of shooting,” Mann explained. The podcaster has invited a local medium, as well as the films two stars, Victor Brimstone and Vera Sunset, to attend Marlow House for an evening no one will soon forget. “There’s a very dark mystery that starts to unfold, which has nothing to do and everything to do with the people who have gathered at the house on this night,” Mann said. The film is being shot in a 111-year-old house in Gananoque, which 10:40 Mann describes 1 10/19/12 AM as “the perfect location for a

haunted house film.” “I’m sure there’s a ghost or two here,” he said. In fact, Mann noted that The Ghostkeepers, like The House Where Evil Was Born, may be cursed to a certain degree. “We’ve had some strange things happen. We’ve had some crazy equipment failures, we’ve lost sound on a couple of occasions and there’s been an overall very, very strange atmosphere during the course of production.” These strange occurrences on set should only add to the film’s ambience. Mann is hoping that audiences will appreciate the film as something a little bit different than what they typically find on the market. “It’s an old-fashioned haunted house piece,” he said, explaining that he’s not a fan of gore or excessive violence. “I don’t like the direction that a lot of modern horror films have gone. We’re going old school but it’s going to look and feel very modern,” he said. The film has a small but talented cast which includes Mann, Christian Pawlowski, Barry Yuen, Jenny Costanzo, Sherri Paterson and Jennifer Verardi. It’s being shot on a Canon 60D and on a shoestring budget of $2,300. “We already have a distribution deal with Worldwide Multimedia; it will be going out in the New Year,” Mann said. Mann’s last film, Terror of Dracula, was also picked up by Worldwide Multimedia and can be found on store shelves at Walmart,

House & Home By Merola Tahamtan

EMC Lifestyle - Are you looking for a way to change your interior or liven it up? Wallcovering is the perfect choice. Wallpaper has made a comeback in recent years. A lot of us have refrained from using wallpaper in the past, but it is an exciting way to add drama and pull rooms together. Today’s wallcoverings come in an abundant assortment of designs, colours, patterns and textures. Wallpaper is a great way to bring life to a room or create a special effect. The history of wallcoverings dates back to the 16th century. Wallpaper was developed as an inexpensive substitute for tapestry, cloth, leather hangings or wood paneling. Its history reflects changing textile design, and its manufacture depended upon the development of printing. Wallpaper was well in use in Europe and China in the 16th century. In 1599, a guild of paperhangers was established in France. Later in the 17th century, English stationers were printing rolls of wallpaper. Most paper was block printed in a repeating pat-

tern; some had additional hand colouring. At this time, marbleized papers and flock papers were popular and prized. These were in imitation to cut velvet, made by dusting powdered wool over a design printed or drawn with a sticky substance. English inventions such as machine printing with engraved cylinders and continuous rolls of paper greatly increased wallpaper production in the 19th century. As wallpaper grew cheaper to meet the demand, the quality of the design declined. In reaction to this, the English artist William Morris produced better designs based on medieval motifs. These designs were highly regarded. Since then, a wide range of designs have become available. After the Second World War, wallpapers with washable surfaces, prepasted and pretrimmed for easier application, made wallpaper, along with vinyl and fabric, an even more popular wallcovering. So why would you want to use wallpaper? It’s the quickest way to personalize a room. Your walls contain more square footage than any other surface in a room. It is the quickest and most inspired textured papers that add beauty and depth to a room by stimulating bamboo, granite and wood grains. Wallpapers also work well in combination with one another or with paint. Using one paper under a chair rail with a different

design above or using contrasting patterns in a room gives you a real feeling of dimension. These days, patterned wallpaper is not just floral bouquets and flocked Victoriana; contemporary patterns, stars, stripes and elegant repeat motifs lend vitality and boldness to a material that has not always been held in esteem. Wallpaper is a great choice; it is potentially less anonymous than plain paint or plaster. Wallpaper is a popular choice for decorating walls, offering plenty of character and style. The texture of some wallpaper can help disguise a wall’s flaws. Choosing the right paper doesn’t have to be so hard. Just follow these simple tips: If the paper is going in the kitchen or bathroom, use a vinyl paper sturdy enough to withstand the heat, humidity and temperature changes that are all seen in these rooms. Consider the needs of your family. If you fall into a category of household with crayon-happy kids like me, consider a “scrubbable” paper. These papers are designed to withstand mild detergents and a little brushing. “Washable” papers are those designed to be cleaned with a sponge to get rid of grime and fingerprints. “Strippable” wallpaper refers to a product that can be easily peeled from the wall leaving little paste. “Precasted” means the wallpaper has been treated with a water-activated ad-

hesive, making it easier to hang. Lastly, “colourfast” indicates it resists fading when exposed to sunlight. All these categories of wallpaper have an enormous selection of wallpaper, so there will be the right one to fit in with the look you’re creating. We all know certain wallpapers work best in certain rooms. Geometric patterns, including plaids and stripes, create a dramatic look that draws the eye upward, making ceilings appear higher. Large prints make an oversized room appear smaller and more intimate. An overall colour, including solids and textures, creates a cohesive background that establishes a unified setting. Small prints add visual interests and background colour to open up cramped rooms or tiny spaces. Visit a wallpaper retailer and see the selection they have to offer. Always see what the wallpaper looks like in your own home. Most retailers will allow you to take a sample overnight and see how it fits in with your surroundings and different types of light. This way you’ll be certain it works for you. Once you’ve made your selection, how much are you going to need? Begin by measuring the wall height from floor to ceiling, excluding baseboards and moldings. Next measure the length of each wall including doors and windows. Find your total square footage by multiplying ceiling height by wall length, and divide

hanging your paper. Stand back and enjoy what you’ve just done. See the new look it creates in just a couple of rolls. Wallpaper is a beautiful way to create elegance, drama or to make your room your own. Merola Tahamtan is an Interior Stylist in Home & Business Design, Home Staging, Painting and Window Draperies.

A perfect family outing for the Christmas season Mark Bergin Columnist

EMC Lifestyle - The Grand Theatre becomes a winter wonderland from December 5 – 16 when The Winter Wonderettes, a Christmas jukebox musical, comes to town. Thanks to Theatre Kingston, it’s the perfect beginning to the Christmas season. Brett Christopher, the theatre company’s Artistic Producer said the show is joyous, fun and unapologetically entertaining. He’s worked with the actors in the past, so he knows the talent level is high. “This show is the sequel to the Marvelous Wonderettes, the 2011 surprise hit at Thousand Islands Playhouse,” said Christopher. “The four women came to me and asked if I’d consider producing the holiday-themed sequel.” Christopher wasn’t sure that a small professional company like Theatre Kingston could pull it off. “But I thought and thought about how important it was for Theatre Kingston to take a big step,” he said. “It’s taking our company to the next level in terms of producing. And it’s tak-

ing theatre in this community to the next level. There have been no Kingston professionally produced musicals on the Grand Theatre stage since it reopened following renovations.” Christopher noted that it’s important to balance internationally produced shows with locally produced theatre. As a professional production, everyone involved in the show is a paid artist, compensated at rates competitive with other major theatres across Canada. “I approached Brian McCurdy, Cultural Director for the City of Kingston, with a business plan and idea for this show,” said Christopher. McCurdy agreed that the city should co-produce. “That was it. That started the ball rolling.” When word got out, people who worked in the Thousand Islands production last year wanted to be involved again. “The previous director, music director, choreographer and costume designer, they’re all involved. They are in the middle of creating this funny and silly Christmas show for Kingston.” The musical was written by American playwright, Roger Bean, who is known for his shows that re-imagine eras of popular music through the use of jukebox hits. In The Winter Wonderettes, Santa goes missing from “Harper’s Hardware Holiday Happening.” Four girls (The Winter Wonderettes) arrive to share their ingenuity, dance and musical talents to keep the

crowds happy. During the show, they perform 25 popular Christmas songs, including Santa Claus is Coming To Town, Winter Wonderland, Jingle Bell Rock, and Santa Baby. It’s the perfect way to kick off the holiday season. Reviews from around North America have raved about the show, calling it a “holiday masterpiece.” A Florida review glowed: “A

top silliness whip by like the last days on the shopping calendar. Beyond the hilarity, the show has several quiet, still moments that resonate.” David Nichols of the Los Angeles Times wrote about the “full-hearted glee that permeates this delightful holiday gift.” In 2007 The Marvelous Wonderettes received the Los Angeles Ovation Award for

You can start your Christmas season off with high quality and fun professional theatre with Theatre Kingston’s production of The Winter Wonderettes.

Hard to believe a revue could do that—but it did….A lightning quick pace sees the jokes, sight gags and over-the-

Best Musical. In New York, the musical received a 2009 Drama League Award nomination for Distinguished Production of a Musical and a nomination for the Audience Award as Favor-

ite New Off-Broadway Musical with The singing will be exciting. Tracy Michailidis, a Queen’s grad, plays the role of Missy. Since leaving Queen’s, Michailidis’ career has soared. All the way to Broadway. She’s played the role of Belle in the Broadway/National Tour of Beauty and the Beast. She’s also landed lead roles at Stratford. “The show’s got a real cross-generation appeal,” said Christopher. “Christmas for me is certainly always about tradition. It’s a warm feeling. It’s a centering moment in our lives every year.” He said Winter Wonderettes reflects those traditions. “It’s nice, funny and sweet,” he said. “And there’s a nostalgic feel. The musical is set in an era over 40 years ago. We still have the same feeling coming down the stairs on December 25 when we see that tree. With all the changes in the world, there is one thing that is constant in this culture and that is our sense of family, of traditions. There is a happiness at Christmas time. This show represents that well.” Christopher said he’s hoping that the show will become part of a new tradition. Their time could include shopping downtown, dinner, skating behind Kingston City Hall and an evening at the Grand Theatre, if people want to make a day of it. The show offers a child-

friendly environment. “This is a pilot project to see if people in Kingston want to see this kind of production,” said Christopher. “It’s important for public funding we receive to be rolled back into the community.” He added that Theatre Kingston is dedicated to merging local and national talent to increase the skill base for the community’s theatre practitioners and audiences. Sixteen theatre artists from the Kingston region are employed in this show. This is your chance to see a (local) professionally produced musical. And the price ($41.81) is a steal for a professional production. That’s about a quarter of the price of Broadway and half the price of an Off-Broadway show. Never mind that the show qualifies for “eyeGo to the Arts” pricing ($5 – not a misprint, five dollars) for full-time high school students. There’s also drastically reduced Youth IMPACT (register online first) pricing at the box office. It’s like Theatre Kingston’s Christmas present to the region. Let’s hope the professional theatrical company turns this kind of production into an annual tradition. Tickets for Winter Wonderettes are available from the Grand Theatre box office. See next week’s Enchanté column for a story about Wonderettes star and Queen’s grad Tracy Michailidis.

Life’s a song for Kingston conductor and composer

EMC Lifestyle - Award-winning composer and conductor Dr. Mark Sirett, Founding Artistic Director of the Cantabile Choirs, is a homegrown master of his craft. The Kingston native has spent much of his career in his hometown. He continues to create and conduct music that could easily be called angelic. Whether it’s a rendition of a popular folk song or sacred music, Cantabile Choirs performs flawlessly. Dr. Sirett graduated from Queen’s University and holds masters and doctoral degrees in choral conducting and pegagogy from the University of Iowa. His teaching credits include the University of Alberta, the University of Western Ontario and Queen’s University. He’s won awards for conducting, including the Jury Prize for Imaginative Programming and Artistry at Ireland’s 2002 Cork International Choral Festival, the Outstanding Conductor Award at the 2004 Young Prague Festival, and the 2009 Presidents Leadership Award from Choirs Ontario. Dr. Sirett has served as an adjudicator on the Jury of the Cork

Dr. Mark Sirett, Founding Artistic Director of Cantabile Choirs. As for the future, Dr. Sirett has several paths ahead of him. “I think it’s many-faceted,” he said. “I wish I could say there was a single goal. I like the kind of personal challenge and mode of expression of being a composer. I feel that’s an important part of who I am. As a conductor, I really enjoy working with the

choirs in Kingston, as well as the opportunity to travel and adjudicate. When I travel, I think the choristers benefit from my being away. It’s enriching for Cantabile to work with others.” I’m betting that in his absence, the choirs miss Dr. Sirett. His creativity inspires many people, both musicians as well as

playing. “Both of my uncles played guitar,” said Sirett. “We’d always have singalongs. We’d sit down and go for hours.” They’d sing Irish folk songs and popular songs by artists like Elvis Presley and Nat King Cole. Outside of the musical environment, Sirett led an active life, but music became important early. “I think I was a pretty lively kid from what I understand from stories my mom and sisters have told me,” he said. “I loved school and was a busy kid. I loved baseball and bowling.” By his teens, music became a major part of his life. Today, if he’s listening to music, his preferences are music of the Romantic Period, composers like Richard Strauss. He also enjoys Celtic music by artists like Canada’s Loreena McKennitt. Seventeen years ago, Mark Sirett turned a dream into reality and achieved one of his most impressive accomplishments: the Cantabile Choirs. The musical term cantabile refers to that which is singable or songlike. “I dreamed of establishing a choral program in Kingston,” he said. “Something that would provide music education for teens and kids, and possibly adults.” Since its founding, the Cantabile Choirs have received numerous distinctions. They’ve won the Mathieson, Cooke, and City of Lincoln Trophies and a Gold Award at the Young Prague 2004 Music Competition.

Dr. Sirett has presented as a choral clinician for the Association of Canadian Choral Communities, Nova Scotia Music Educators, Nova Scotia Choral Federation, Manitoba Choral Association, Ontario Vocals Festival, the Royal Canadian College of Organists and the Royal School of Church Music. That’s quite a list of accomplishments. He grew up in a musical family. “My first musical memory definite surrounds family,” he said. “My mom’s side of the family was large. There were eight siblings, and our grandmother lived with us. Our house was the gathering point for family. There was usually lots of music when we were together.” He explained that it was rare for the family to listen to recorded music. They were too busy

Passage of Bylaw violates Values and Traditions, Island Horsemen say By Margaret Knott Correspondent

EMC news- Members of Wolfe Island’s Ken White family, operators of White’s HorseDrawn Carriage Service along with a group of horsemen/ women attended the November Frontenac Islands council meeting to register their frustration with the passage of a bylaw to Regulate Waste on Township Roads . Their opposition centres primarily on .. Sections # 2 related to domestic animals and the disposal of excrement from public property including sidewalks and municipal roads and #3 which states: no person shall drive, lead, walk or ride a horse, pony or similar animal on a sidewalk in the municipality. “Wolfe Island is a community built on strong values and traditions violated by the passage of the bylaw, ”spokes person Rob White declared.”We are here to challenge and seek the amendment of sections 2 and 3. Their implementation will change the Rural community that we call home.” His presentation which included references to how other rural townships dealt with ‘horse manure on the roads’ without bylaws. “It’s the way the bylaw is written,” he said.

Mayor Denis Doyle indicated that that there had been no intent to cause difficulty or punish with the bylaw but to deal with garbage issues that had arisen. “We don’t always do it right,” he said. Councillor Grant and other council members acknowledged an error with the bylaw’s quick passage and a need to clarify its boundaries with the village as the big issue. In conclusion Council agreed: ‘that no action be taken with regard to bylaw sections 2 & 3 until a meeting has been held between horse owners, interested parties, and council and proposals to amend the by-law have been agreed upon.’ 2. MPAC Assessment: WI residents Edward and Gail Kenney were in attendance to discuss issues around their MPAC property assessment appeal, denied by the Assessment Review Board, potential appeals, and dissatisfaction with the appeal process. Reading from a prepared statement Ed, alternating with Gail, questioned council’s absence at the hearings; their expenditure of $50,000 of wind farm money for a lawyer at the hearing as a misuse of funds; and their loss of equity, comparing MPAC assessment levels and broker information of a lower property value level.

“MPAC approached us to negotiate initially with the township’s lawyer who was adamant the township would not agree to a settlement, if the wind turbines were mentioned. We were not prepared to disguise the issues,” Ed said. They have been granted leave to submit a motion requesting a review of the decision of their appeal based on “withheld MPAC and township information. We are looking for compensation for loss of our investment.” MPAC is not prepared to acknowledge wind turbine impact and has no criteria established to guide its assessment of properties affected by nearby turbines ,”Gail read “This council has continued to follow a policy of alignment with the wind corporation on this issue. “ Council members questioned some figures outlined in the presentation, the intent of amenities agreement, costs of hiring of a lawyer etc. It was noted not all assessments of properties adjacent to wind towers have been lowered, while others remain high. Mayor Doyle said that in the event of a further MPAC appeal, the decision to spend/ or not spend money for legal council will be a budget decision made by the whole council. Councillor Springgay confirmed all legal expenditures for

WIBTA (Business & Tourism Association: VP Curtis Ireland informed council that WIBTA is continuing to wind down in preparation for dissolution of the organization. The township has taken over responsibility for the public facilities and Information Centre, hiring etc. “We are currently looking at ways to keep the website going,” Ireland said. (WIBTA AGM, Nov. 20th, WI Town Hall, 7:00 pm) Other Business:1.An update of the grant request to the Community Infrastructure Improvement Fund received from WI Community Centre Board Chairman Paul Hogan led to the passage of a resolution stating that: regardless of whether or not the municipality receives approval for the Province of Ontario FIT Program the Township intends to make the construction of a roof for the outdoor arena a main priority. 2.Bylaws passed: 1. to establish Howe Island annual ferry fares. (annual pass $220.); 2. Animal Control & Bylaw Enforcement Services by Frontenac Municipal Law Enforcement Inc 3. Council committed $ 15,000.00 for a Howe Island Transportation Study. Contract awarded to AECOM. Items of interest: *Payments

services were clearly identified in previous year budgets with no complaints The Kenney’s left a package of information supporting their position. 3.Wolfe Island Network (WIN) for a Healthy Community: committee members Donna Ivimey and Kayo Murakami Wood, presented a report on the work of the WIN including its history, 2012 annual report and a proposal for continuing and expanding WIN activity (sustainability) beyond the March 2013 grant period. “WIN encourages healthy lifestyles and social development (with a focus on youth and seniors), gathers and shares information among community organizations,” Ivimey said. “Coordinating local resources results in better programs and strengthens community capacity. Based on the Community Inventory we propose the creation of a Health and Social Development Committee of Council to continue engagement with community groups .” Kayo Murakami had prepared a number of posters showing the interaction between community groups and organizations. The WIN report suggests a $7,500 part time co-ordinator contract and $2,500 operating costs. Mayor Doyle thanked them for their presentation.

Medtronic brings awareness to the community about diabetes and exercise By: Mandy Marciniak Correspondent

Diabetes is a disease that many Canadians deal with, whether it is type 1 diabetes or type 2 there are many challenges that come along with this disease. One challenge that many diabetics face is how to handle and monitor their diabetes effectively when exercising. A recent discussion was held regarding this issue at the Radisson Hotel in the Kingston Harbourfront on November 21st. Sergio Faraone, the territory manager for Medtronic in Eastern Ontario, came up with the idea for this discussion after seeing increased interest from the public regarding this matter. “We frequently hold public events for educational purposes and to bring information to diabetics or family members of diabetics. We bring in key speakers and well-known members of the medical community and it’s really helpful. People can get a great deal of information and can ask questions and get answers on the spot.” said Faraone. Faraone organized a

similar event in Ottawa this year and because of its success he decided to host a similar event here in Kingston. Diabetes and exercising can be very challenging, “Sometimes having either type 1 or type 2 diabetes, when people exercise it causes fluctuations in sugar levels and people have a hard time managing this post exercise. So events like this help people understand how to manage their diabetes when exercising and to really enjoy exercise and not have to worry about it effecting them a great deal,” explained Faraone. Attendees of the event listened to and interacted with leading medical professionals in this field from the Kingston area, “Dr. Robyn Houlden and Dr. Michael Ridelll are the two doctors who led the discussion based on their research and experience with diabetes and exercise. They gave tips on what to do and what not to do. Also, Dessi Zaharieva who is a Canadian Champion in Tae Kwon-Do and living with Type 1 diabetes and is also a motivational speaker and wears an insulin pump spoke to attendees about her experiences with

Cory Conacher, an NHL/AHL hockey player who has type 1 diabetes, speaks to attendees of a Medtronic discussion on Diabetes in Ottawa in August 2012. this issue,” added Faraone. While it is sometimes hard for people with diabetes to find information based on their specific needs, Medtronic tries to include a wide range of helpful advice at all of their events. “It was an information session so there were booths for all

of the sponsors as well as a bunch of information on the products that Medtronic makes. The physicians talked about all of this as well. We covered a wide variety of topics for diabetics and hopefully provided information for everyone that attended,” said Faraone.

Medtronic will definitely be looking to host future events in Kingston as well, especially if there is more interest in this particular topic. Turnout is really important, “We try to promote as much as possible and would like to see as many people as possible attend

because it really is very educational and beneficial to people living with diabetes,” explained Faraone. For more information on diabetes and exercise or on upcoming medtronic events in the Kingston area visit their website at www.

The Chem Chiks and the Chiklets celebrate first CD release By Mandy Marciniak EMC Correspondent

EMC Entertainment - Bluegrass, Gospel and Country are not genres of music that are generally associated with teenage girls, especially teenage girls that form and perform in a band, but that is exactly what spectators get when they come out and see The Chem Chiks and the Chiklets. The band is made up of seven teenage girls, ranging in age from 13-18, and was originally formed four years ago as a foursome, The Chem Chiks. “The name comes from the initials of our four names. We played together for about a year and then we started auditioning for singers to join us and the first three singers we saw were actually what is now The Chiklets. We didn’t have to go through much process from there,” explained band member and fiddle player Erin Couch. The girls have been together ever since, playing shows at local retirement homes and community centres for the past three years. Last summer they played their biggest show to date. “We went and did a big bluegrass festival in Cornwall and that was pretty ex-

citing. We played for about 1,000 people, our largest audience yet. We love going around to all of these different places, having different people come up to us and say that they enjoy our music. It is very rewarding and absolutely one of the best parts of it,” said Couch. The group is certainly not your typical girl group, but Couch urges people to come and see them before they judge them based on the genre of music they play. “Until you actually come and see how lively it is and how much fun it can be you don’t really know what kind of experience it is. I think for all ages our show is a really good thing to come out and see. Our average set is about an hour so it’s pretty entertaining.” The group has certainly been busy and recently recorded an album. They celebrated the CDs release with a concert Oct. 28 at St. Mark’s Anglican Church. A number of people were turned away at the door, so an encore CD release concert is scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 24 at St. John’s Presbyterian Church, 2360 Middle Rd., Kingston. “We did recordings in January and then the CD was just finalized about three weeks ago,” Couch said

prior to the Oct. 28 concert. “We went into a recording studio here in the Kingston area that is in a musician’s basement so it was exactly what we wanted, nothing major and it actually turned out really well for us. We’re really happy with it.” The CD is called ‘Ring the Bell’ and features nine tracks. They go in alternating order with five songs that include vocals and four that are just instrumental. So what’s next for The Chem Chiks and The Chiklets? “Initially our plan was to keep things small but obviously we aren’t going to refuse publicity. We don’t have any major plans as of right now; we’re just going to wait and see how things go with the CD release,” said Couch. “It has been a gradual thing and has been growing every year, so hopefully it continues.” Tickets for the group’s Nov. 24 show are available at A World of Rentals, 154 Railway St., Kingston, 613547-4400 or by calling Jean Cooper at 613-548-3087. Advance tickets are $10 or $12 at the doors. CDs available for $20. The show starts at 7 p.m. and will feature a special appearance by NoteWorthy.

ways aware of what the source is. Sometimes I used to get worried about writing I’ve not completed or some commission I haven’t finished, or if I felt ideas weren’t flowing. Nowadays, I don’t get too worried about that. I realize there are lots of ideas percolating behind the scenes and I’m not always aware of them. The base of inspiration is working the choral sounds. Images are created musically.” Could he ever imagine a world without music? “It’s hard to imagine a

world devoid of art or music,” he said. “Music and all the arts empower and enrich the soul.” Dr. Sirett sees his work as ever-changing, and he’s proud of the Cantabile Choirs. “Innovation and spontaneity are some of the hallmarks of Cantabile,” he said. “I like to think it’s an interesting mix of repertoire, the way things are presented and an understanding that it’s not just a traditional stand-up-andsing type of choir.” He said that the simple movements of the choir are designed for visual impact. “For example, at the

Christmas concert, we spend a lot of time thinking about how we move in and out of the building. The visual presentation is just as important as other aspects.” You can witness the Cantabile Choirs in person in their “From Heav’n to Earth” Christmas performances on December 21 (7:30 p.m.) and 22 (2 p.m., 7:30 p.m.). The concerts feature a candle-lit celebration of friends, family, tradition and Christmas music. For more information about Dr. Mark Sirett and the Cantabile Choirs: www.

Bartering a survival tool in the 30s By Mary Cook

EMC Lifestyle - It seemed to me that not much money changed hands back in those Depression years. Of course, there wasn’t much money around. Mother pretty well ran the house on what was in the sugar bowl holding her egg money, which came from selling eggs, cream, butter, chickens and sticky buns door to

door in Renfrew on Saturdays. And of course, in the summer times, a few more pennies were realized when she could add fresh vegetables from our ample garden to her wares. Father always had a few coins in his pocket, but they were few and far between indeed. It seemed to me back then, that most of the com-

Aikenhead Store. A fresh chicken for chicken wire, or freshly churned butter for cough medicine. There really was a Mr. Scott and a Mr. Aikenhead, and they seemed to know ready cash was scarce. I doubt Mother was ever turned away because she hadn’t the money to pay for what she needed. It seemed to me Father was continually bartering with other farmers in Northcote. It wasn’t at all unusual to see him walking a young heifer out the lane with a rope around its neck and coming back with a colt. Or he would load a sheep in the back of the old Model T, and come back with a couple of newborn piglets. It was how the farm community survived the terrible Depression that had closed in around them. Although we depended heavily on the hand me down boxes that came regularly from Regina, from Aunt Lizzie, it wasn’t’ at all unusual for the clothes to be traded amongst the neighbours. I once got a lovely coat from my little friend Joyce who had outgrown it. I doubt we had anything to give her in return… they were so much better off than we were. After all, Joyce lived in a

brick house and had a toilet! As regular as clock work, we had visits from Rawleigh and Watkins door to door salesmen. They travelled by horse and buggy, and we could always tell when they were coming in our long lane, because they both had big brass bells around their horse’s necks which gave plenty warning they were on their way. They were both great salesmen, and it was hard to resist their wares. It wasn’t unusual for Mother, when she had bought over

her limit to start bartering with them. They bantered back and forth, and when the salesmen realized there wasn’t enough money to pay for what Mother had chosen, they could either take the couple pounds of butter and a few eggs, or pack up and leave. They usually accepted the barter. It seemed to me back then, that bartering was simply a way of life. There was no embarrassment to trading one thing for another. It was just another tool that helped people of the thirties survive.


Mary Cook’s Memories

merce of the day was done by bartering. Mr. Briscoe at Briscoe’s General Store wasn’t interested in trading what he sold for chickens, vegetables, cream or butter. After all, the entire Northcote farm area had an amply supply of those things themselves. But he always welcomed Mother’s sticky buns. These she traded for sugar and green tea. For the rare times old Doctor Murphy had to drive out all the way from Renfrew, and there were very few coins in the egg money bowl, he would be paid for his visit with a freshly plucked chicken, a sealer jar or fresh cream, and of course, eggs. There was always an ample supply of eggs, and Dr. Murphy, it seemed to me, never expected to get hard cold cash for his trip out from Renfrew. The stores in town were a different matter. Those owned locally were used to bartering with the farming community. But you could never make a deal with Walker’s Store, which was owned by some big firm in Toronto. It had to be cold hard cash. But it wasn’t unusual to see Mother making a deal at Scott’s Hardware or

EMC - Your Community Newspaper

Time travels in a Ford Lab Car Counsellor Brian Turner

EMC Lifestyle - In the interests of front-end disclosure, I (with other members of the Canadian auto media) recently attended a press tour of Ford’s Research and Advanced Engineering Centre in Dearborn, Michigan. Ford paid for our airfare, hotel, and meals during the one evening and half-day event. Ford isn’t alone in their continuing efforts to improve the safety, reliability, efficiency, and function of their products and only time and sales will tell if they do their jobs better than the competition. At the beginning of our tour we met with Ford’s chief product analyst, Dr. Bob Santer, who reminded us that when we entered the sprawling complex we actually travelled

five years in the future as the products and improvements they were currently working on wouldn’t hit the streets until the 2017 model year. We got behind the scenes tours of several different labs from Light Weighting (research into new body panel materials and construction) to the Human Occupancy Package Simulator which measures and rates the ease or difficulty drivers would experience getting in and out of a new vehicle design or reaching controls and switches. This lab was taking full advantage of new technologies in motion tracking video systems and computer aided design to rate any changes in body and interior vehicle construction before a prototype

is ever built. The Human Machine Interface lab involved work on touch-screen controls, new instrument cluster designs and voice activation systems. While Ford has taken some hits lately regarding its ‘My Touch’ display/control system, recent upgrades to existing vehicles have ironed out many of the bugs, and from the demonstration we witnessed on voice activation, the complaints about delays between voice requests and function executions will soon be history. Our host at this lab, James Rankin, mentioned that some people just can’t be heard correctly by even the best voice activation system due to their accents, speaking clarity, or intonations just like some spouses have a hard time getting their commands understood by their partners. My advice here, is if you’re considering buying a vehicle with this option, try it out during a demo test drive to make sure you and your car are on speaking terms. One of the most interest-

ing labs we toured was the Bio lab headed by a very enthusiastic and committed Dr. Deborah Mielewski. Her team was challenged with the unique task of reducing the amount of petroleum used in the approximately 300 lbs of plastic and fabric that goes into the average vehicle. They have had great success in using soybean and corn oil as well as waste paper, textile clippings, wheat straw, and even wood fibres in the construction of interior panels and parts, seat foam pads and covers, and floor carpeting. Henry Ford, who used a lot of wood in the construction of his Model T’s and A’s would have been proud. As many of the bio-materials they experiment with are normally destined for landfill as waste byproducts of other industries, the benefit to the environment is multifaceted: reducing petroleum use, improving the carbon footprint, and shrinking the amount of waste going to landfills. To prove, even lab scientists have a sense of humour,

Deborah’s team recently experimented with shredded used U.S. paper currency as a building material. As the U.S. mint uses a lot of cotton and linen fibre in their manufacturing process, the Ford Bio lab thought it might make a great raw material. They were right, and the prototype automotive component they created with this old money was a coin tray. Henry Ford always stressed the benefits of a good working relationship between agriculture and his company. After all, Ford was a major supplier of farm equipment to the U.S. and Canada, and Henry knew the value of his farming customers. The Bio lab keeps up this tradition and their work with soybean oil. They’ve attracted funding from a U.S. soybean farming association as well as expert advice on how to optimize their uses of this plant. For the critics that might be concerned about using food crops for nonfood uses thereby driving up the cost of groceries,

Deborah reminded us that they use a relatively small amount compared to the ethanol fuel industry and their products don’t end up as tailpipe emissions but as lasting hard products. Her team has gone one step further and done what many industry leaders said was impossible, created a process to recycle seat and headrest foam eliminating another risk to our environment. If you have any questions, opinions, or stories on anything automotive please drop me a line, [By email to or directly to listing ‘Question for the Car Counselor’ on the subject line or by post to Record News Communications, 5 Lorne St., P.O. Box 158, Smiths Falls, Ont. K7A 4T1]. When using regular mail, please supply a phone number if you seek direct contact (due to volume I can’t always promise replies). Yours in service, Brian Turner

News from the Kingston and Area Real Estate Association

LISTINGS As of October 31, 2012, there were 2,205 Active Listings in the Kingston area, of which 1,385 were Residential properties. Total Active Listings are up 2.9% from 2,142 this time last year.


PRESIDENTS COMMENTS October saw a rebound of sales activity. Sales exceeded September results by a healthy margin, which was unexpected for this time of the year, as sales generally decline as we exit the fall market. For the first time in 6 months, our 12 month average house price surpassed 3%, settling in at 3.4%. The driver for this result was the unusually high number of sales in the $320K-$400K range. Despite overall higher sales this year over last year, in the “under $260K” price range, generally the range for first time home buyers, overall year to date sales are actually lower than last year by 4.3%, which suggests that, despite con-
